Zelensky 'told' Russia will attack on February 16

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated on Monday he and his administration have been informed February 16 will be the day Russia will launch an invasion on their country.

Zelensky confirmed he had signed a decree and declared that date the Day of Unity. "This afternoon we will hang national flags, put on blue-yellow ribbons and show the world our unity," he wrote in a post on Facebook. Zelensky stressed his administration will seek to solve the issue with Russia through diplomacy but also warned that Ukraine's armed forces are ready for action if necessary as it is "already times stronger than the army eight years ago."

His statement comes after United States President Joe Biden reportedly told his allies Russia could attack Ukraine on February 16. His Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin responded such allegations are "provocative speculation." Then, earlier in the day, British Prime Minister Boris Johnson said that Moscow is "at least planning for something that could take place as early as the next 48 hours."
